Specifically I don't think you should be so hastily removing this feature. I can see people upgrading Arcanist and getting tripped up because it's no longer telling them when they're about to do bad things (and that will be perceived as Arcanists fault for no longer telling them).

I am not sure that this behaviour should be removed. The behaviour of arc diff prior to D11843 appeared to be add untracked files using a prompt (admitedly separate to adding uncommitted files), which was changed to move a single prompt. I don't believe that leaving untracked files in the working copy is a desirable behaviour.
